Joining and Leaving


Anyone can join a Medicare Advantage Plan regardless of their health history, except for End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), to which there are special rules.


In order to join a Medicare Advantage Plan, there are a few requirements that need to be met:


  • You must have Part A and Part B
  • You must reside in the plan’s service area
  • U.S. citizen, resident, or lawfully present in the U.S.


When trying to join or leave a Medicare Advantage Plan, it’s important to know that you can only do that during certain times of the year.


  • If you just became eligible for Medicare, you can sign up during your Initial Enrollment Period
  • Anyone that has Medicare can join, switch, or drop a Medicare Advantage Plan between October 15th – December 7th. If your request is processed by December 7th then your plan will begin on January 1st.
